i am learning path integral for quantum field theory, and my professor used euclidean time (imaginary time) and most textbooks use minkowski time.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

does actually changing the time from real (minkowski) into euclidean (imaginary) CHANGE the physics in some way?
